These new tools feature a mixture of cobalt and stainless steels, making them rust proof and ten times stronger than other steel implements.
Antoine, of Antoine de Paris, is pleased to introduce to the United States, a line of new acrylic nippers, cuticle nippers, pushers and scoops made of cobalt, the world’s strongest steel.
These new tools feature a mixture of cobalt and stainless steels, Antoine explained, making them rust proof and ten times stronger than other steel implements. Antoine cobalt-inox must be written inside the handle with no abbreviation to ensure the implement is the new Antoine cobalt.
“Mark of Excellence for the Professional” has always been the trademark of Antoine de Paris, Inc. Antoine first introduced his line of nippers, pedicure tools and assorted facialist tools to the United States 25 years ago.
“They have had tremendous success due to their excellent quality and lasting edge,” Antoine stated, adding that one of his most popular items is his #11 acrylic nipper, the original triple-reinforced nipper designed specifically to chip away acrylic or plastic products before a fill-in.
Antoine was born in Paris, France, where he worked in his family’s beauty salon as a youngster. He eventually became an internationally-known hairstylist.
Since Antoine grew up in the beauty business, he has always been in tune with the special needs of professional manicurists, constantly listening to their growing needs. For example, ten years ago, as more men and women with larger hands entered the business, Antoine designed a special long-handle nipper to rest comfortably in the manicurists hands, preventing callouses from forming. Seven years ago Antoine introduced his popular #9 and #5 pushers and #15 scoop.
